Lake Vrana, in the centre of Cres, is believed to be one of the deepest lakes in Eastern Europe and has a fascinating myth surrounding it. The lake was believed to be home to a castle that was flooded in retribution for the selfish actions of its owner, on windy days it is reputed that you can hear the bells ringing. If you can ignore the creepy overtones of the tale, the lake is a wonder to be cherished, although no swimming is allowed as the lake is the water source for the island. The town of Cres is a wonderful place to spend your days, filled with boutique shops and great restaurants.
You will struggle to be bored here, especially as there are a number of small villages to explore around this wonderful town. One of the most famous is Beli, a glorious town which has many historic features and is the choice place to stay on the island due to its picture postcard feel. The island is also a haven for watersports with diving and snorkelling hugely popular, equipment can be rented from a number of places in Cres.
